A blast from the past and food was good too!

This is what it use to be many, many years ago when you went to an airport. You can practically touch some of the small planes! This place was built in the 1930's and has the original art deco design, details, etc. -- it's like you walked into a small airport in the 1930s. The restaurant was... read more

I can't disagree with previous reviews. We went there for a late afternoon lunch on a Saturday afternoon. Place was moderately busy. A nice selection of burgers - moderately priced. Restaurant is in the old terminal building of the Lunken Municipal Airport. Restaurant decor fits the building. Very pleasant to sit and watch private aircraft take off and land. Appeared... More

The Good: Classic American Diner Food, Amazing Art Deco Building, Reasonable Prices, Very Good Service The Bad: no knockout dishes, could be cleaner This is the old Airport Restaurant at Lunken Field in Cincy. The building is a slice of history with links to Lindbergh, The Beatles and American Airlines. The restaurant itself has been here since the 1960s. The... More

This restaurant is in the Lunken Airport, once the main Airport for Cincinnati. It is Art Deco period and has retained that atmosphere. The menu is extensive, with some regional dishes such as Braunschweiger sandwiches, as well as more traditional American offerings. I had the fish and chips and the portion was generous, but the fish was a little over-cooked... More

Atmosphere, aerially speaking. Choppers, single n twin engine, Jet setters, commercial n private aircraft of all sorts and sizes. Lunch, Dinner depends on if your coming or going. Keno with beverages if you so elect to imbibe. Free Parking round back and metered parking on Wilmer out front. The "nickle tour" is incredible. Souvenir Shop to assist the little people... More

Been here many times and it never disappoints, never too crowded, always good service, food not great but good, and I got my favorite - meatball sandwich with a pint of beer. Wonderful. Total bill for two of us was $19.00 - you can't go wrong !

My wife and I were out for a drive and decided to stop in. We hadn't been there in years. Sky Galley is in the old Lunken Airport terminal. it was a memorable visit. You could sit there and watch prop planes and corporate jets come and go. As for the restaurant / food itself, they have a good menu... More

Their pulled pork sandwich is outstanding and reasonably priced. They have window and outdoor seating for viewing air traffic. The burgers are also good.

My mom loves this place - she always wants to go, I hesitate but when we arrive I always kick myself for fighting the urge. Liver and onions, braunschweiger sandwiches, Cobb salad - great staples from times gone by AND you can watch the air planes take off and land. Decor is nothing fancy but the food is great and...

We live in Cincinnati and had never come here before. I loved the decor on the inside, the outdoor seating, the view of the airport, the drink prices, etc. It was all very good. The server was not very attentive, but she was really nice and gave us generous pours. I would highly recommend this place - whether you live... More
